The Schnaggenkreuz Cross loop route begins in Völs am Schlern and passes by the hamlets of Umes, Völser Aicha and Prösels, offering immense variety and close contact with the surrounding countryside. In Prösels, it is well worth taking a detour to the historic Castel Prösels, which organises fascinating guided tours.   

The route begins in Völs am Schlern and leads initially along the Obervöls road towards Ums and, after a brief descent, crossing the shady Völserbach river, where the road on the left-hand side merges with a forest road leading to the Hofer Alpl. Carry on along the forest road for about 500m until you come to the Umser Weiher lake. From here, go right through the hamlet of Ums, along a short downhill stretch to sawmill and, from the crossroads, along a forest trail again. This trail leads up the slopes of the Tschafon to the Schnaggenkreuz cross. You’ll clock up a good few metres of altitude on the way before you can stop off for a well-earned break or take a detour to the nearby Völser Aicha lake. Continue onwards, past Völser Aicha, take the turn-off to Tiers and follow the main road. At the Prösels junction, the trail takes you past the Ums mill and then weaves back towards the set-off point in Völs am Schlern.
